Statement by the President on Curiosity Landing on Mars

Tonight, on the planet Mars, the United States of America made history.

(WASHINGTON DC) - The successful landing of Curiosity – the most sophisticated roving laboratory ever to land on another planet – marks an unprecedented feat of technology that will stand as a point of national pride far into the future. It proves that even the longest of odds are no match for our unique blend of ingenuity and determination.

Tonight’s success, delivered by NASA, parallels our major steps forward towards a vision for a new partnership with American companies to send American astronauts into space on American spacecraft. That partnership will save taxpayer dollars while allowing NASA to do what it has always done best – push the very boundaries of human knowledge. And tonight’s success reminds us that our preeminence – not just in space, but here on Earth – depends on continuing to invest wisely in the innovation, technology, and basic research that has always made our economy the envy of the world.

I congratulate and thank all the men and women of NASA who made this remarkable accomplishment a reality – and I eagerly await what Curiosity has yet to discover.

How could this be? I have read over and over by Daniel Johnson that America is sliding into the abyss!

America made History, what a joke. Remember, Obama shut down NASA right after he was elected. We pay for the flight we go on, to the Russians. Guess you don't want to hear that. We have nothing to be proud off for the last 4 years, since the Muslim took over this Country and keeps raping this Country every day. So don't fool yourself, we lost just about everything we were ever proud off.
